Stacking has been a popular way to bring down tournaments, and some stacks are even cash game viable. We offer three free top stacks of the night and will provide stacks in a wide range of price tags. We do want to make it known that stacks in Colorado are often fairly obvious and popular stacks. We don't feel the need to break down Colorado stacks and will be more focused on other stacking options. Unless we are struggling to find three others, Colorado stacks will be a top choice but not broken down. We tend to look at park factors, Vegas numbers, starting pitcher and bullpen numbers, and various offensive stats. Feel free to shoot us questions on Twitter at @BrentHeiden1, @JGuilbault11, and @dfcafe.

The blowups have been far and in between for James Shields this season, but as his 65% left on-base rate and .255 BABIP goes, he remains very lucky in most starts. Seattle is a late night hammer stack that will be lower owned with a few offenses in better ballparks and who have been more consistent in the stacking department. Shields throws a low velocity 89mph fastball 29% of the time, and then a cutter 23% of the time. Those are the only two pitches being thrown over 20% of the time. Against the fastball most of these bats stand out. Dee Gordon has a .432 wOBA, and while the .316 ISO is wild, it is there. Jean Segura has a .516 wOBA and .333 ISO against this fastball range, and has been hitting well this season. Segura's price has finally dropped to a more appropriate level. Mitch Haniger has a .417 wOBA and .235 ISO against this fastball range, but against cutters he has a .378 wOBA and .295 ISO. Nelson Cruz is in that same boat with a .381 wOBA and .247 ISO against cutters. Even guys towards the bottom of the lineup like Ben Gamel and Chris Herrmann have over a .400 wOBA against cutters, and the same goes for this fastball range. Herrmann is a cheap catching option although he is hitting towards the bottom of the lineup.

The Dodgers got there man, and by man I mean Manny Machado. He is another right-handed bat that will be mashing lefties for this Dodgers team. With Justin Turner, Kike Hernandez, Matt Kemp, and Chris Taylor already in the lineup this team is going to be very good against left-handers. They get Wade Miley tonight who has allowed a .372 wOBA, .185 ISO, and 33.5% hard-contact rate to right-handed bats dating back to last season. The Dodgers get an upgrade in Miller Park for right-handed power, and Miley can certainly serve that up. Miley is pretty similar to Shields with a low velocity fastball and cutter. Against this fastball range everybody but Austin Barnes has over a .200 ISO. Machado stands out with a .381 wOBA and .241 ISO. Kemp has been mashing fastballs with a .492 wOBA and .333 ISO. Max Muncy has a .423 wOBA and .333 ISO against this range, but overall against lefties has a .357 ISO and .474 wOBA. Against cutters Kemp, Taylor, Muncy, and Machado have over a .200 ISO. The above stats for Miley are just from a few starts this season given his injuries, he is not this type of pitcher.

It is going to be around 108 degrees in Texas tonight, and Martin Perez is on the hill. This is a perfect matchup for the Indians who are looking to get moving in the second half. Francisco Lindor and Jose Ramirez are the expensive options, but with a lot of cheap and mid-range pitching you can fit this stack in. Against sinkers there are a lot of quality bats, and Perez throws it 49% of the time. Lindor and Ramirez both have over a .400 wOBA and .200 ISO against the pitch. Edwin Encarnacion has a .363 wOBA and .204 ISO. You will get some back half of the lineup guys in there like Brandon Guyer and Erik Gonzalez. Guyer has a .219 ISO and .374 wOBA off lefties this season. Gonzalez has a .401 xwOBA and 43% hard-contact rate. Roberto Perez is projected in the lineup, but Yan Gomes is the more interesting catching option if he is in the lineup. He has a .268 ISO and .422 wOBA off southpaws this season. Against Perez's secondary pitch the changeup, which has been clubbed for a .389 wOBA and .258 ISO, there are quite a few bats that standout. Lindor, Encarnacion, and Ramirez both have over a .200 ISO.
